Thank you all for the nice comments.



Today we have a story about the wholly owned subsidiary of the TMMC, the On18 Horse Thief & Never Mine Ry. This is the "narrower gauge" mining tram that runs on top of the mesa and shunts ore from Big Thunder Mine to the transfer bins at Horse Thief Canyon. In the video, I explain a little about On18 modeling, and go into detail about the build of my On18 "Baby Climax."

In today's blog post, there's more info on On18 and more photos of the little engine. Thanks for checking it out.

Excellent new video Dave. I might have to unbox some of my ON18 stuff now that I am inspired.

Happy Holidays!



This week we get into the 2021 Calico expansion already underway on the Thunder Mesa layout, plus a behind the scenes look at how my track plans and layout maps are created. Thanks for tuning in, Amigos!

DITTO!!!!! Just like Bill said. Wonderful video. You were one of the first guys on the forum to encourage me back when I first posted the ol' GRIZZLY & DILAPIDATED RAILWAY tribute to John Allen. You were particularly helpful with comments about the hand laid track and "Bubbles" the friendly T-REX. I have always enjoyed all your posts; keep 'em coming.
MERRY CHRISTMAS,

KYLE

I long for those days where I picked up an issue of Model Railroader and read articles by Olson and Furlow. I so wish they were modeling again. What a great tribute!
